The Neighborhood Study Center Teacher Aide Program. 1969-1970 Evaluation.
Community Services Planning Council, Sacramento, CA.
The program is designed to help provide the extra help with schoolwork that educationally and economically disadvantaged children need. The project has study centers in every low-income neighborhood in Sacramento, opened at the request of an organization or agency in the area, and staffed by volunteer tutors contribute one to two hours per week to one or a few children. Teacher aides provide individual help to the child under the guidance of the teacher. This allows for more effective use of the professional teacher and for the utilization of special skills that aides bring to the classroom. Coordinating the entire project is the central staff whose role is to: advise sponsors of the organization of centers; recruit, train and place supervisors and volunteer tutors; develop tutor and supervisor guides and materials; provide supplies and books from the project budget; maintain central records and bookkeeping; and, evaluate the project each year.
